Autumn Tea

Autumn is here I want to share a tea with you - and roses
We start with roses
A friend gave me this pretty miniature rose.
Just the perfect color to go with my Sears Cattail tea set

This dish set was made in in the early 1940s; the teapot sold for $2.98 and a cup and saucer was fifty cents


Let's have some Fresh Apple Cake with our tea.  Apple cake is perfect for an autumn dessert.






Green Bakelite handled flatware is perfect for these dishes


Come, sit, enjoy, there is tea and cake for you too


And lovely roses to scent the room

Tea Time Tuesday

JoAnn, your tea set is perfect with your roses! Imagine getting a tea set for that price today! Apple cake sounds wonderful with a cup of tea. Thanks so much for joining me today.

What a sweet tea set. Perfect for fall. Can you believe the price of them so long ago? I love the trucks of pumpkins in your header!

What a lovely table! Those tea roses are glorious. (I misread the cost of the teapot at first...thought it was $298!!)

JoAnn, I enjoyed our tea so much. We will have to do it more often! I have always admired that pattern but never knew who made it or what it was named. It is so retro and the roses are just beautiful and a perfect compliment to the tea set and to Fall..Happy Tuesday..Judy
